SO I bought a Ford Puma 1.7 Clutch Flywheel and clutch from the fleecbay for £38 That will fit my gearbox

I then bought a clutch kit to fit a 1.8 ford focus and that comes with the slave cylinder as well for £69

Sorry about the above photo :D But you get the idea :D

I may need a new starter motor as well to fit the flywheel but I will have to see about that :-\

hopefully all that will arrive by friday so I can start putting the gearbox on... worst case I just start making the engine mounts and get the gear selector working...

Looking forward to getting this engine in and working :D

I managed to get an hour in the garage tonight and I wanted to suss the gear selector....

The mgf one did not work... so a rummage about the odds and sods bin gave me this....

It will work as a temporary prototype but as soon as I prove it will work perfectly I will make a new one with a few changes..

Also I need to find some rose joint things for the ends as well...

Got An hour in the garage today so started fitting the engine mounts.

The 3 pronged one did not fit but a tweak with a big bar I managed to get 2 holes to line up....

So out came the CAD and I have mocked up a template to make a steel bracket for the 3rd leg....

My clutch arrived today but I doubt my flywheel is going to come before the weekend so I will just keep plodding on with making the engine mounts...

I can't see this part taking too long....

Hopefully by next weekend the engine will be in

The ford puma clutch flywheel arrived and to say it is a little scabby is an understatement to be honest. I have taken it to my mate to skim it and tidy it up which we had to do anyway becasue we are fitting a 220mm clutch instead of the OEM 210mm clutch.

I have also decided to make my own Poly engine mounts and so that should make things a bit easier for me :D

I have googled and worked out what I need and for £27 I will have enough liquid urethane to make everyones bushes :D

(is anybody reading this?)

Well Friday came and I was recovering from man flu so was a slow day.

I decided to tackle the clutch and soon discovered that the flywheel was wrong....
20190125_122950.jpg


So I bolted the gear box up to the engine without the clutch just so I can make a start getting it in the frame.

Well it kinder fits but I need to modify it a bit to make.it perfect.

I then spent today trying to get the engine mounted....

I had the sputnick mount fitted and with lots of messing about I decided to change the way I was doing things and made up some solid mounts to just try and get the engine in the right place then I can make proper mounts when I am happy it all works...

I decided to get a cheap Mig welder to help with tacking stuff up and generally a lot cheaper to use than the Tig welder... so I bought one of these

https://www.machinemart.co.uk/p/mig130e ... ig-welder/

I only paid £130 for it and it has only been used a couple of times...

Tomorrow I get a full day in the garage again so hopefully I will make some actual progress :D well that is the plan anyway

A sudden spell in hospital has put a stop to my Mojo build for now..

I am out of hospital but need to rest up and take a step back from 1 or 2 projects as I am burning out :-(

Sorry to hear that, hope you're feeling better.

Did you have an accident with your new MIG welder?
